Keep on pedaling with affordable bicycle insurance from Markel Specialty.
You love your bike! You’ve shared many memorable adventures together. But what happens if your bike is damaged or stolen? Or you run into a pedestrian? Or worst of all, someone runs into you?
Don’t expect much from your homeowners insurance. It’s probably filled with exclusions and restrictions on “sporting goods”. Plus, you’re likely to pay a high deductible. You need a separate Markel Specialty bicycle insurance policy. That way, you and your valuable bike are covered and protected.
It’s a bike. Not a tank. That’s why insurance is so important.
Whether you ride a carbon fiber tri-bike or a big steel cruiser, it can still get banged up pretty bad. Or stolen. Or if you ship it to an event, it can get lost or damaged. There so many things that could happen … and so many ways that Markel Specialty bicycle insurance can protect you!
